How can you get better at listening?

The key to developing your language is lots of practice over a long period of time.  The most important thing is how many hours you spend listening to and speaking English, every day. People who use English 10 hours a day get better much faster than people who speak for 2 hours a day (over 6 months or a year, the difference is dramatic).
